This text is designed for a broad range of language users. It is suitable for GCSE, A Level and university students needing quick revision or reassurance, self-study or evening class learners, holiday-makers, or anyone requiring a selective guide to Spanish grammar.
The problem of standardization uniquely affects Spanish which is spoken in over twenty countries, therefore the type of language described in the grammar is international Spanish. Latin-American usage is included wherever educated usage differs markedly from European. A brief appendix is also included, summarising major points of difference between European and American usage that are not been covered in the body of the book. The appendix on pronunciation is especially detailed as the abbreviated accounts of Spanish pronunciation given in books at this level are frequently misleading. This appendix gives equal prominence to comparisons with British and American pronunciations of English, and American variants of words are given where necessary. Full verb tables and a list of irregular verbs are also given. This book is intended for a broad range of language users: GCSE, A-level or university students needing quick revision or reassurance, self-study or evening class learners, holiday-makers, or anyone requiring a selective guide to Spanish grammar.
